Summary: [For part I, see He, T.X., Hsu, L.C., Shiue, P.J.-S., and Torney, D.C., J. Comput. Appl. Math. 177, No.1, 17–33 (2005; Zbl 1064.65002).]
A kind of symbolic operator method is expanded here that can be used to construct many transformation formulas and summation formulas for various types of power series including some old ones and more new ones.


05A15 Exact enumeration problems, generating functions
65B10 Numerical summation of series
33C45 Orthogonal polynomials and functions of hypergeometric type (Jacobi, Laguerre, Hermite, Askey scheme, etc.)
39A70 Difference operators
41A80 Remainders in approximation formulas
